    Right now there's a Democratic president, a Democratic controlled Senate and a Republican controlled House.  And, according to you, the Republicans have no leverage.

    Prior to the new Congress but after the election, there was a Democratic president, a Democratic controlled Senate and a Republican controlled House.

    I agree with you; the Republicans have no leverage.  Nor did they before.  And I'm not interested in rehashing old debates, but merely to point out that the power dynamics are the same.  The fact that the last round of deal making had nothing to do with the debt limit is simply a red herring.
